Heathrow 15th September 2013 - A quick visit!

Whilst spending a weekend down in London with my beloved Wife, we happened to pass Heathrow at the right time on the Sunday afternoon. In a fairly short time the following three new subjects passed by on approach.......sadly the weather was far from ideal!!

Finnair A321 OH-LZG was on its first visit and is the first A321 with "Sharklets",

China Southern 787 B-2833 which had only started serving LHR that week

and Azerbaijan Airlines A320 4K-AZ78 which wears the airline's brand new scheme.

MAN 2nd September 2013 - T2 Aviation 727 G-OSRA arrives for painting.

The first Boeing 727 to visit Manchester for over six and a half years!!
T2 Aviation's G-OSRA arrived early evening for painting by Air Livery, once in service the aircraft is to be based at Doncaster for Oil Spill Response work.

For nostalgia ..... one of the rarer 727's to visit MAN in the past was this example, TAME of Ecuador HC-BZS which passed through on delivery on the 20th February 1999 after leaving the fleet of Istanbul Airlines.
